I don't know about you, but my grandmother had beautiful handwriting (it was cursive, y'all) and so does my mom. I have very neat handwriting but its not stop-and-stare pretty like theirs is. So I've recently been on a mission to find ways to preserve their handwriting and I came up with the following list! I'd love to hear any other ideas y'all might have - share in the comments!

Now, I have saved the most important for last. These are what really spurred this post. Last November, I made a pledge to hand write a note every day to someone I was grateful for. Not only was it special for the recipient to receive but it allowed me a moment every day to reflect on how many people have touched my life. I also make my children write thank you notes because I want to instill in them a sense of gratitude.
